The Best Cordless Vacuum Cleaners 2017

Our ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if owner ratings suggest poor performance.

Ratings in this report start at 4.7 stars

Prices range from £200 to £480

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of cordless vacuum cleaners with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the cordless vacuum cleaners with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion. We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars.

After sorting the list by ratings, we compile the following Top 5.

Well Rated Finds The Best UK Products

Our Notes on this Market

This is the second update for our report on the best cordless vacuum cleaners you can buy in the UK.

In 2016 we saw Dyson take every slot in the Top 5. In 2017 we see two GTech vacuum cleaners enter this high scoring and competitive market.

We saw lots of different cordless vacuum cleaners when making this report – Argos stocked 48, John Lewis 27, Tesco 60 and Amazon over 120.

Bosch, Aeg, Hoover, Morphy Richards and Vax hoovers were all in the running, but couldn’t contend with these high scoring machines.

We have kept this report for stick style/full height hoovers, rather than the small handhelds.

It is a complicated market for the consumer to navigate and compare. There are many variants of the same models. The differences are often subtle and can only be seen in the product description.

As with last year, we are impressed by the number of reviews left for cordless vacuum cleaners. There are well over 10,000 user reviews left for the vacuums in our Top 5.
